Portland, OR “Kenyan” threatens to blow-up convenience store in the name of Allah

This guy is about as Kenyan as I am.  Sure, looks like a Somali who probably arrived here as a refugee from one of the big UN camps in Kenya.  Note that he arrived here as a very young child, but our “welcoming” generosity apparently had no effect on him (remember Ian Tuttle in his NRO article (posted earlier today) pointed out that the ‘next generation’ in America may be worse than their parents in terms of radicalization.)  Mosque influence right here in America?  Or, just plain old thug genes?

From Oregon Live:

A 19-year-old is accused of threatening workers repeatedly at a Northeast Portland deli when he wasn’t able to buy a single cigarette, saying he would blow up the store “in the name of Allah,” court records say.

Time to send Abdalah Mohamed back to Africa?

Abdalah Mohamed also is accused of making disparaging remarks about Jews and Israel in July, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Mohamed was arraigned Monday afternoon on two counts of second-degree intimidation. He entered not guilty pleas to each count.

He was booked into the downtown Portland jail on the warrant Friday.

Court records indicate he’s lived in Northeast Portland for about six years and is originally from Kenya.


That’s when Mohamed started shouting threats laced with profanity and demeaning comments about Jews and Israel, Freud wrote.

According to the affidavit, Mohamed screamed, “I will blow up your store” and “I’m going to send my guys to shoot up your store.” Mohamed also referred to the owner as a “Jew” and an “Israeli.”

“You Israeli … I’ll blow up your store in the name of Allah!” Mohamed is accused of yelling, Freud wrote in the affidavit. “We take care of people like you.”

Mohamed left the store, continuing to yell at Rafai and spit on the ground toward Rafai, the affidavit said. While police were investigating and interviewing witnesses at the deli, Mohamed is accused of calling the store and leaving another derogatory message, the affidavit said.


According to court records, Mohamed came to the United States in 2000.

What?  Not enough basketball to keep them busy. First it was Christmas trees they wanted to blow up, now it’s convenience stores! (Portland also happens to be the home of the now imprisoned Somali Christmas Tree bomber.)

After Paris, everyone is talking about Muslim immigration, and not just in Europe

Here are a couple of recent opinion pieces on how we need to reconsider Muslim migration to America. There are others, if you see one to add here, let us know.

Lawrence Auster (January 26, 1949 – March 29, 2013): A man ahead of his time! In 2009, he argued for a dramatic halt in Muslim immigration to America.

The first is from the columnist Georgie Anne Geyer:

There are simply too many cases on the books now not to believe that there is a powerful current among these Islamic immigrants that abhors belonging and demands ruling. And it is not only in Europe, but it is also in Canada and the United States, where anti-Semitism and the subjugation of women in particular are present in the minds and manners of too many Muslims.

Indeed, in America itself, we need only to look critically at the trial now starting in Boston of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, accused in the Boston marathon terrorist attack. He comes from quite a family. Not only are young Dzhokhar and his late older brother suspected in the bombing, but his mother and two sisters were earlier accused of shoplifting and various other crimes.

So the question then comes down to one word: Why?

Why was this family — Muslims all, from the extraordinarily brutal Chechen ethnic region of Russia, with no means of support in this country and with no loyalty to American principles — allowed to migrate here? The odds that they would succeed, given their background and the rage they HAD to have in their hearts against the world, were virtually nil. And they have fulfilled that promise with flying colors. [The answer is that we have an absolutely out of control asylum system, and the sooner everyone, including columnists get up to speed on it, the sooner it might be reformed.—ed]

So it is time to ask the unspoken (and unspeakable?) question: Why should the U.S. and Europe take as immigrants people who are 99.9 percent allied against the Western way of life? Why are we not protecting ourselves? Why are we singing infantile songs about how all have the right to be “free” when “freedom” for them is becoming radicalized and joining a murderous group like ISIS.

And, here is Ian Tuttle at National Review Online (with an enormous number of comments).

Radicalism seems to ferment as much, if not more so, among first-generation Westerners as among their immigrant parents. Which means that massive Muslim immigration may have few visible repercussions today — but a great many tomorrow.

That reality is becoming manifest in the United States.

There is much more, read it all.  Tuttle mentions our refugee admissions policy.

Thank you Lawrence Auster!

For all of you newbies on the control-Muslim-immigration band wagon it might do you good to visit this speech (A Real Islam Policy for a Real America) by Lawrence Auster given four years before his untimely death in 2013.  Thanks to Judy for sending it.

Endnote:  One of our top posts of all time, is this one from 2013 where radio talk show host Laura Ingraham (also ahead of her time) called for a moratorium on Muslim immigration to America.

Plea deal in Maine arson case; poor Somali language translation dooms prosecution

This is an update of our post earlier this month, here, about the then 12-year old admitted arsonist in Lewiston, Maine (the Somali capital of New England!).

Lewiston, Maine May 4, 2013: Displaced residents of Bartlett St. fire. When ‘Welcoming America’ promotes those economic studies about how refugees bring economic benefits to communities, do they factor in the cost of criminal activity?

From WMTW.TV (notice no mention here of the word “Somali” in the text).  Hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers’

LEWISTON, Maine —The last of the criminal cases involving a string of arsons in Lewiston nearly two years ago has been resolved.

On Monday, a 14-year-old Lewiston boy was convicted of one count of aggravated criminal mischief, a felony, in connection with the May 3, 2013, fire that destroyed several apartment buildings in downtown Lewiston that displaced dozens of people.

As part of the plea deal, prosecutors agreed to drop four counts of arson against the boy, who was 12 at the time of his arrest.

The boy will be sent to a juvenile detention facility for an undetermined amount of time, up to the age of 17.

Prosecutors said because of language issues, they were not confident they would be able to prove their case against the boy.  [“Welcoming” communities, pay attention!  The cost of qualified interpreters falls on local and state government.—ed]

Prosecutors did ask the judge to levy a penalty of $58,000 on the Somali family, but the judge dismissed that crazy idea saying where the heck would they ever get that much money (not exactly in those words!).

Another article at Insurance News Net gives us a much more thorough review of the case and makes the following point.  Keep in mind that Abdi Ibrahim will be out of the juvenile facility in 3 short years!

Charges against Ibrahim stem from fires that burned four apartment buildings and a garage on Bartlett and Pierce streets in Lewiston on May 3, 2013. According to a forensic psychology report, Ibrahim is considered a moderate arson risk to the community in the future. That same report concluded the teen presents a higher behavioral and social risk because of a history of poor social skills and chronic behavior problems in multiple settings, including assaulting others and running away, according to court records.

That reference to assaulting people and running away reminded me of this story we reported from Lewiston, Maine in December 2009 where ‘youths’ were doing just that, was little Abdi Ibrahim among them?

By the way, some of you have asked where is the father?  He lives in Lewiston too!  I bet he has another wife tucked away!  From a 2013 story at the Bangor Daily News:

Ibrahim lives with his mother, Marian Ibrahim, according to court papers. His father, Yussef Abdi, lives at a separate address in Lewiston.
